Synopsis

Al-Kulliyat, a dictionary of differences in terminology and language compiled by Abi al-Baqa al-Husseini al-Kaffawi al-Hanafi (died 1683/ AH 1094). He was born in Crimea and studied Islamic theology and Arabic linguistics in his hometown of Kuffa. He served as a judge at al-Qudus and Baghdad.
He was exiled by Sultan Muhammad Khan to Kuffa where he spent twelve years, afterwards he served as a judge in Istanbul until his death (Al-’A’lam, Zarkali /38).
Another scholar, Omar Rida Kahala, mentions ’al-Kulliayat’ in his book Mu’jam al-Mu’allifin (Vol. 3/ 31) as one of the best reference books, containing about 6000 subjects covering Islamic and Arabic culture during the ten centuries before the eleventh century after the Hijra. The subjects cover Fiqh, theology, philosophy, logic, linguistics and related subjects.
